The Lenders Project Launch
- Location: The British Medical Association, London
- Date: 22/01/2016
- Time: 08:30 - 10:30
Kim Vernau, BLP's CEO is invited to attend the UK-GBC Lenders Project Launch.
UK-GBC has joined with mortgage lenders and building industry experts to launch a research project into the link between energy costs, affordability and mortgage borrowing.
Over the next 18 months the "LENDERS" project will build the evidence base for using more accurate estimates of energy bills in mortgage affordability calculations. If successful, this could allow higher lending for more efficient properties and eventually lead to a greater link between efficiency and property value.
Supported by Innovate UK, LENDERS will draw on the expertise of a diverse range of project partners including Nationwide Building Society, Principality Building Society, Zero Carbon Hub, Constructing Excellence in Wales, BRE, Energy Saving Trust, Arup and University College London (UCL).
